Maine: Anti-Gun Legislators Trying to Shut Down Shooting Ranges

Recommended Posts

On February 25th, the Maine State and Local Government Committee will hold a hearing on Legislative Document 489, which would allow noise ordinances to be used to shut down local shooting ranges.  Please contact members of the State and Local Government Committee and urge them to OPPOSE LD 489.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact members of the committee. 


Currently, noise ordinances do not apply to shooting sport ranges under Maine Law.  This legislation, sponsored by Senator Justin Chenette (D-31), would endanger shooting sport ranges, even if they operate safely and are otherwise in full compliance with the law.  Municipalities could use these ordinances to effectively shut down the ranges with costly renovations, unreasonable court fees, hiatus, or even closure of operations.  These ranges allow law-abiding individuals to practice their shooting skills in a safe and responsible environment and should not be regulated out of existence.   

Again, please click the “Take Action” above to contact members of the State and Local Government Committee and urge them to OPPOSE LD 489.  If you are able to attend the hearing on February 25th, it will take place in Room 214 of the Cross Office Building, beginning at 9:00AM.
